GENERAL ADVICE:
Rinse the timber thoroughly to ensure all the cleaner is removed and leave the surface to completely dry before proceeding to next step.

STEP 2. SAND

Prior to coating it is best to lightly sand outdoor furniture with 120 grit sand paper. Dust down ensuring a clean dust free surface.

STEP 3. COAT

Coating your wood in the right way will allow it to survive the test of time whilst looking great. There may be a number of products and options available to you in this step.
